|Nowlikephotographs In-Studio with unFact|
Pay attention people, because your mouth is about to drop. David Wm. Sims, former member of The Jesus Lizard, has recently started up a solo-drone project called unFact, and his dark, heavy ambiance is dang good. David recorded four tracks with Nowlikephotographs, two of which ("Returning from Antarctica" and "Hard World for Little Things") are not yet released.

|Nowlikephotographs In-Studio with Noveller|
Is it possible to combine a guitar, a handful of effects pedals, and some old celluloid film and make high art? We certainly think so. Which is why we were so excited when Noveller (the moniker of Sarah Lipstate) was able to drop by Studio K and show off nearly 25 minutes of textural, ambient sound-art. Sometimes atmospheric and other times droning, Noveller's experimental guitar work is paper-thin and heavy at once...

|Nowlikephotographs In-Studio with Lighted|
From the darkest corners of the Minneapolis art-rock scene come Lighted--a psychedelic-drone band with enough dirty grooves, spacey synths and pounding drums for even the most cultured experimental music fans. All of these tracks are fresh; culled from recent studio jamming, these four songs will work their way on to an album (or tape) later this year. Recorded and produced July 12th, 2010 by Radio K's head student engineer Joe Hinz in Studio K...

Nowlikephotographs brings you an in-studio performance from Minneapolis-based Sun in the Satellite, who blend psychedelia and shoegazery into a perfect union.

|Nowlikephotographs In-Studio with Citizens of the Empire|
There is something to be said for no-nonsense, cathartic post-rock. Citizens of the Empire dropped by the studio recently and laid down just that--marching drums, pointed bass, and razor-sharp guitar-work that could bring heaven (or hell) to its knees. Of special note, the guys graced Nowlikephotographs with an exclusive, yet-to-be-titled new track. Recorded and produced August 23rd, 2010 by Radio K's head student engineer Joe Hinz in Studio K...
